InfraGard Atlanta Member’s Alliance (IAMA) is a non-profit organization serving as a public-private partnership among U.S. businesses, individuals involved in the protection and resilience of U.S. critical infrastructures, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
InfraGard National Members Alliance (INMA), which consists of local InfraGard Members Alliances (IMAs) throughout the country. An InfraGard “chapter” refers to the local FBI, the local IMA, and the local InfraGard members working together.
IAMA is the Atlanta chapter of InfraGard. It is a local association of persons who represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, non-profit organizations and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.
From drinking water supplies to communications systems, chemical production processes to agricultural resources, Americans depend on a select group of critical infrastructures to sustain our way of life. Any attempts to harm or destroy these resources would directly impact the security of the United States and its citizens.
Most of these systems and services are owned and operated by private industry. Therefore, the protection of our nation’s infrastructure cannot be accomplished by the federal government alone. It requires coordinated action from numerous stakeholders – including government, the private sector, law enforcement, academia and concerned citizens.
InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and members of the private sector. The InfraGard program provides a vehicle for seamless public-private collaboration with government that expedites the timely exchange of information and promotes mutual learning opportunities relevant to the protection of Critical Infrastructure. With thousands of vetted members nationally, InfraGard’s membership includes business executives, entrepreneurs, military and government officials, computer professionals, academia and state and local law enforcement; each dedicated to contributing industry specific insight and advancing national security.
